Scarlet-Red Dragonfly meet 遇见猩红蜻蜓时 ...


So, my project for the day was FLOWERS but instead I met a Scarlet-Red Dragonfly ....
at Kuala Lumpur Hibiscus Park two days ago ....



Whenever I meet a dragonfly, I will stay at the spot for more then just a few minutes ...



as it will just fly back to the spots in front of you inviting and teasing you to photograph it ....



you can play with it from different angles, and it will show off its ....



Someone once told me I should be shooting these dragonflies in black and white but ....



maybe not .... 
 as I like them the way they are 
especially this Scarlet-Red Dragonfly ....

Thank you little scarlet-red dragonfly 
for spending 30 minutes with me 
on a beautiful Saturday morning ...
Hope you like it !

A truly amazing macro with very defined rich color! Your third shot reminds me of a graceful ballerina, in which, sometimes dragonflies look human like praying mantis.....They are all beautiful , thanks for sharing! Greetings, Linda

Usually I don't like insects but this one is splendid! In my country we have them only in blueish-dark green. I haven't seen such a purple one! Thanks, Wong, for showing this to us!
